It’s a big day for Twihards. First Maggie Grace signs to play Irina. Now EW.com has learned that little 9-year old Mackenzie Foy is inches away from signing on to play Renesmee, Edward and Bella’s vampire/human love child that’s a central role in the final installment of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.
It’s not yet clear how the diminutive actress, who’s appeared in one episode each of television shows FlashForward and ‘Til Death, will portray the character who ages a full 17 years in only seven. Sources have suggested that director Bill Condon will employ similar digital effects to those used by David Fincher in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, where Foy’s face would be digitally transferred onto the face of a younger child. It’s also probable that the studio will hire a younger child in some capacity, too.
Summit Entertainment is remaining mum on the issue. But to see Foy’s angelic face, which could very well be the offspring of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, check out her website.
According to this Summit entertainment have confirmed to Moviehole.net that 9-year-old Mackenzie Foy will play Renesemee Cullen in The Twilight Saga : Breaking Dawn. via
I approve the casting of little Miss Foy for Renesmee. She may be too old as far as my visions are concerned but I surrender my apprehensions to Mr. Condon and his team. They should know better. Turning the book into a 2 full-length films is not an easy task not to mention one which involves a character like our Nessie here. So, I will reserve my thoughts on this and just sit back and enjoy the show, so to speak. Surprise us, Mr. Condon!
Btw, you cannot literally transform any book into a movie, bit by bit. Everything will rely now on Bill Condon's storytelling, on how he will weave his ideas and blend them into the story and make it a whole. I'm just excited by all this. Sorry folks, no negative vibes here.
Ok what do you think?
